Shoppers at Waitrose, Llanfoist

SHOPPERS at Waitrose, Llanfoist are urged to support local buildings preservation charity, The Village Alive Trust Ymddiriedolaeth y Pentre Byw, in August.

The Trust has been selected to benefit from the Community Matters scheme run by Waitrose whereby customers can use green tokens handed out at checkouts to support up to three local good causes each month. Since 2008 the company has donated £14million to nominated good causes across the country.

Pat Griffiths, chairman of The Village Alive Trust, said  "The Trust is run by volunteers and has conserved listed buildings across the area since its inception in 2004. Grant aid has been obtained from various bodies for individual heritage projects over the years and any funds raised through the Community Matters scheme will be used to carry on the good work, so thank you to anyone who supports the Trust's appeal in August."
